Manual Neurovascular Release (NVR) Part 1: Neck, Upper Thorax, and “Roots of Arms”
In Manual NVR Part 1, the first course in the Manual NVR series, we will focus on the neck, head, and upper thorax, including the shoulder girdle and the lungs. We will discuss using these techniques to address persistent issues such as forward head posture, thoracic outlet related nerve symptoms, shoulder injuries, and the discomfort and thoracic movement limitations related to scoliosis.
We will also explore working with vagus nerve tension to lungs, heart, and stomach, phrenic nerve tension, pulmonary arteries, and artery tension to diaphragm.
Throughout the Manual NVR course series, you will learn how to work strategically with the vascular system to release hypertonic muscles that are shortening the myofascial tracks, distorting posture, and limiting movement. You will also learn to free up peripheral nerves, cranial nerves, and dural restrictions to improve structural balance and function. While learning these techniques, you’ll gain new strategic approaches for classic functional problems, you will find yourself using less physical effort, your work will become more efficient, and you will improve your sense of layer palpation which will enhance your outcomes.
This work will also help you to cultivate your clients’ and patients’ proprioception, interoception, nervous system regulation, and an appreciation for how smart and adaptive their body is. In this context, we will discuss how to sensitively and safely work with trauma response and somatic experience. We will also discuss general cautions and contraindications to consider when you are reviewing medical history, signs, and known diagnoses and when you are planning your way through a session.
Distance Learning Format
For the distance learning version of the Manual NVR course series there are five 4-hour live online classes instead of three 7-hour in-person classes (20 CE hours instead of 21 CE hours).
Classes will be recorded for you to have access to later for review, but please note that you must attend class live in order to receive CE credit. Live attendance is also required if you are on the pathway to certification.
Support throughout the course and in the months following
Classes will be recorded and you will have ongoing access to these for review, but please note
that you must attend class live in order to receive CE credit. Live attendance is also required if
you are on the pathway to certification.
The $1000 tuition includes small group and private mentoring in addition to the 21 class hours:
- Online access to videos documenting all the techniques taught in your live course.
- Free private fifteen-minute mentoring sessions via Zoom, each focused on one client case (scheduled as needed during the year after your course has completed).
- Student discount on longer 45-minute mentoring sessions via Zoom, $80 instead of $150.
- A three-month subscription to the NVR Monthly Seminar Series, a total of six hours of live sessions and recordings.
Overview of the NVR Certification Pathway
In Manual NVR Part 2, the second course in the certification series, we will focus on the pelvis
and hips and continue our work with the torso.
In Manual NVR Parts 3 and 4, we will work into the extremities, discussing lower body patterns
and upper body patterns, and you will continue learning to address neurovascular restrictions
affecting the lungs and other organs.
Manual Neurovascular Release (NVR) Part 1: Neck, Upper Thorax, and “Roots of Arms” (Distance Learning)
NVR Part 5 is a practicum focused on assessment and practical application, in which you will
be applying all that you have learned in Parts 1-4 while doing full sessions with outside models.
Practitioners earn Anatomy Trains Advanced Certification in Manual Neurovascular Release by
taking all five Parts in the Manual NVR course series. You are free to alternate between
distance-learning and in-person courses as you plan your course schedule.
